The Oulanka Adventure combines all the best ways to explore nature! Hike, canoe and bike – one could call this as Oulanka Triathlon.


Duration of this adventure is 3 days (2 nights). Length of the route is about 90 kilometers.. We will hike, canoe and bike through the Oulanka National Park all the way to Ruka.

Adventure will take place 14.7 - 16.7.2023. This adventure is also available for private groups per request.

The night before the hike, we gather and spend the evening together at the premises of Ruva Holiday (Sallantie 203, Kuusamo). You can leave your car at the accommodation while hiking. Transportation from Ruka to the accommodation after the hike is included in the price. You can also request other transportation options in Kuusamo and Ruka regions.

During the evening, we go through the gear, pack the backpacks and go through the hike in more detail, without forgetting important safety instructions. In the morning we enjoy a nutritious breakfast, fill our hot water bottles with coffee and prepare for the day.

After breakfast, we have transportation to the starting point of the adventure, Ristikallio starting point, where we start our hike in Oulanka National Park. First day we will hike about 18 kilometers and stay overnight in Oulanka Camping.. 

On the second day we will hike from Oulanka Camping to Mataranniemi (2 kilometers) where we will start our canoeing experience. Our canoeing route takes us to the most beautiful canoeing route in Europe. This route is about 25 kilometers long and we will canoe it all the way to Huotinniemi, where we will stay over night.

Third day we will cross the Oulanka river to Kuusinkiniemi. We will leave our canoes to the shore and switch to eFatbikes that are waiting for us. We can also leave our backpacks with canoes to be transported to Ruka while we are biking.
